    Thank You Art Day is FREE.
    The Day of 39@rt ("thank you art") is a holiday to appreciate, promote, and otherwise positively engage ourselves in contemporary art. It was established by Yoshiaki Kaihatsu in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan. Now, more than 141 galleries worldwide has participated in Thank You Art Day. In Japanese, "thank you" rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), because there is no "th" sound in Japanese and the Japanese people tend to pronounce "th" as "s." Thus, the Day of 39@rt on March 9. Gallery 101 will be offering snacks and refreshments to anyone who will be dropping by. Come one, come all! Thank you for supporting contemporary art!
